Johnny Marines a native New Yorker from the Lower East Side, has been a monumental force in the meteoric rise to stardom for the Latin American group Aventura and more recently, Bachata star, Romeo Santos, who brought Johnny on board to continue being his manager.


Anthony “Romeo” Santos (born July 21, 1981) is an American[1] singer, featured composer and former lead singer of the Bachata group Aventura. As a member of Aventura, Santos has been a key figure in popularizing Bachata, with hits reaching near the top of the Billboard Latin charts and the top of charts in Europe. In 2002, the band’s song “Obsesión” was number one in Italy for sixteen consecutive weeks.
